SHEP PhD students win GRADnet Entrepreneurship Challenge

Four PhD students from the Southampton High Energy Physics group at the University of Southampton: Azaria Coupe, Andrew Lawson, Anthony Preston and Marc Scott, won the GRADnet Entrepreneurship in Action challenge on Wednesday 13th July. SEPnet institutions were invited to form teams of postgraduate researchers to compete in the challenge: each team was tasked with creating a novel business idea, which was then to be pitched to a panel of judges made up of entrepreneurs and business experts. The judges were impressed by the Southampton team’s idea of a mobile app designed to teach people how to play musical instruments, citing in particular their understanding of the target market and existing competition, and were confident in the ability of the team to make their idea a reality.
